We wanted to spend our 10th anniversary at a palace hotel, and basis reviews on TripAdvisor and our budget, we chose the Taj Jai Mahal Palace hotel. Booked a winter package through their website for the luxury room with a private sit out.
A mercedes transported us from the airport to the hotel (we wanted to do this in style). The welcome was traditional with music, garlands and a lovely welcome drink. The check in was very efficient and we were on our way to the room in less than 5 minutes.
It was a wonderful surprise to be upgraded to the peacock suite. This suite was very luxurius, with a living room which had plasma TV, DVD player, home theater etc., a big bed room, a sitting room and a spacious bathroom. And when they learned that it was our anniversary, they comped us a cake and flowers. Nice touch...
The property is huge and the gardens are beautifully maintained. We used a few of the facilities - spa (the swedish massage was good), the badminton court and the children's play area (for our 2 year old). There is enough to keep you occupied. The children's play area needs an upkeep and is not the same standard as the rest of the hotel.
We had a meal credit as part of the package and we dined at two of their restaurants. The food was excellent at both the restaurants. Marble Arch served multi cusine and Giardino served Italian. The service at Marble Arch was exemplary (My son saw an egg at the live breakfast counter and thought it was a rasagulla (an indian sweet) since we are vegetarians. The waiter immediately got a rasagulla for my son without asking. I was impressed with the effort). the pizzas at Giardino were great, but the service was a little slow and it paled compared to the one we got at Marble Arch, where the head chef came to us twice in our stay of 3 nights for suggestions that we might have on the food.
We also had a half day sightseeing included in our package and we were shown Amber fort, City palace and Hawa Mahal.
Overall we were very impressed by the property, the suite and the service.
Taj - thank you for making our anniversary holiday special. Take a bow.
